Pinay accused of theft allowed to post bail

08 January 2019

Court allows bail to one Filipino, revokes  same from another for skipping his haring

A Filipina domestic helper who is facing a charge of theft in Eastern Court for allegedly stealing 1,700 renminbi ($1,943) in cash from her employer in December has been granted bail.

A. Berbana, 33, first appeared in court on Dec 24, two days after she was arrested by police for allegedly taking the money belonging to her employer Wong Man-nga.

On Jan 8, she returned to court and offered to post $6,000 bail and the prosecutor did not object, so Magistrate Peter Law granted the application.

The helper gave an address in Hunghom where she will stay while on bail. She was  ordered by Law to stay in that address and to report to the Hung Hom Police Station between 6pm and 9pm on Thursdays.

She was also told to show up at the next hearing of her case on Jan 21.

Meanwhile, Law ordered a Filipino male defendant in an assault case arrested and his bail confiscated after he failed to show up for the hearing of his case at the same court on the same day.

The defendant, Reiner Rios, is facing a charge of “inflicting grievous bodily harm” for allegedly attacking a South Asian male sometime last year in Li Yuen St West, popularly called “ale-ale” by Filipinos.

Earlier reports said Rios and another unidentified Filipino male were drinking in a pub in the alley when they got into a fight with the South Asian.

The two Filipinos allegedly beat up the victim with a hockey stick and a golf club. When officers arrived to break up the fight, the two Filipinos ran away. The police gave chase and caught up with Rios. - Vir B. Lumicao
